Leeds set to complete forward signing despite being pictured at PL giants - reliable journalist

By Danny Wright

Leeds are poised to make the signing of former Barcelona forward Kun Temenuzhkov official in the near future, according to a reliable journalist.

Albert Roge of Spanish news outlet Sport claimed on his personal Twitter account on Tuesday night that the Whites will complete a deal with the 17-year-old “soon” despite him being pictured at Premier League giants Manchester City.

Temenzuhkov is said to have gone to Manchester in order to complete his medical for Leeds, not for the Citizens who appeared as though they had hijacked the deal.

Bulgarian outlet Novsport has previously reported that the striker had terminated his contract at Barcelona in order to force through a move to Elland Road.

It was said that the Bulgaria Under-18 international felt as though he had a better opportunity to impress with the Championship side.

Leeds’ youth squad, like the first-team, has undergone a huge overhaul this summer with a number of new faces being welcomed by the Yorkshire giants.

Madger Gomes, Alejandro Machuca and Adrian Balboa have all completed their moves to the Whites, as well as attacker Ousama Siddiki who has joined from Real Madrid.

Football Insider Verdict

The fact that Leeds have been able to attract players from Barcelona and Real Madrid shows that the men in charge of the youth set-up at Elland Road are doing all the right things. As with any youth player, some simply might not be able to make it, but with pedigree from some of Europe’s top clubs they will have no trouble in selling them on in the future. Temenuzhkov looks like a good prospect. It’s strange that he completed his medical at Man City, but Leeds might have struck up a deal with their Lancashire rivals where they can make use of their state-of-the-art facilities for players to undergo medicals.
